I travel extensively throughout the world for my work and have stayed at many of the worlds great hotels. Quite frankly, I was not expecting but was pleasantly surprised to discover a world class property in the tiny town of Lenox.
The Winthrop Estate is a perfect marriage of an historical Rockefeller-like New England mansion of the 1920s and a Four Seasons hotel of today. This is how we’d describe our stay at Winthrop Estate. The experience was nothing short of going back a hundred years to the days when The Berkshires were a pastoral retreat for the great Industrialists and statesmen of the day while enjoying the luxury of the current era. The Winthrop Estate is neatly tucked away, thus we experienced as little or as much of civilization as we desired. In the morning we took a walk to the center of Lenox (a sleepy but adorable typical New England town), which is just a five minutes away. We stopped at a bagel shop, then got coffee at a French patisserie, and then just walked and enjoyed the tranquility and simple beauty of this historic area.
The Winthrop Estate was a perfect place to decompress from the busyness of everyday life. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this treasure to everyone.
